Gloucester Rugby can today announce that a new cashless system will be available for club members to use at all bars at Kingsholm on match days ahead of the 2014-15 season.
Cashless will be going live ready for the first Aviva Premiership home fixture against Sale Sharks on Saturday 13th September.
Members can preload their club and 1873 club membership cards, to enable them to make payments at the bars, both reducing queuing time and allowing more time to chat with friends and watch the action on the pitch!
The cashless function has been developed in conjunction with long-term partner allpay, the club are delighted to announce the new cashless facility which will improve the overall fans' experience at Kingsholm.
Gloucester Rugby Commercial Manager Mike Turner is delighted with the new cashless system and hopes that supporters will be too.
"It is our aim to continuously look at ways to improve the supporter experience. The new membership cards can be loaded with cash and by doing so will generate loyalty points that can be redeemed. We are planning to roll out to other areas of the club going forward with the aim of having a totally cashless stadium in the future.
"Inevitably there will always be bottle necks of queuing at sports grounds but this should help reduce that so less of the action will be missed and through the bonus point offer, we can reward our supporters during their time at the rugby.
"allpay are market leaders in this area so it's great to work with them on this project"
